After Gage Prim (205cm, C) acted excessively, the response was obviously wrong.
March 10th. Ulsan Dongcheon Gymnasium where the 6th round of the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball regular league between Seoul SK and Ulsan Hyundai Mobis was held. SK seized the victory with 84-75 23.2 seconds before the end of the game.
The defeat of Hyundai Mobis was deep. He had a defensive line up until the end. So did Gage Prim. Prim approached Bukyung Choi (200cm, F) who was holding the ball. I tried to steal the ball from Choi Bu-kyung.
But it was too strong. Prim’s knee collided with Bu-gyeong Choi’s knee, and Bu-gyeong Choi, who bumped his left knee, could not get up. He complained of great pain.
Prim watched Bukyung Choi suffer. Nevertheless, no attitude was shown. His actions to steal the ball and fouls are possible, but a player who was injured because of his actions did happen. He should at least go to the injured player and apologize.
But Prim didn’t take any action. The SK bench and players were furious. It was natural. In particular, SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol sent a strong gaze (?) to Prim. This too was natural. Because one of their players is injured.
Prim had to apologize. However, Hyundai Mobis head coach Cho Dong-hyun apologized to SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol. Hyundai Mobis manager Jo Dong-hyun said after the game, “I apologized for Prim’s behavior (when shaking hands with coach Jeon Hee-cheol). In that respect, he also told director Jeon Hee-cheol, ‘I will give you a warning,’” he said, expressing his apology.
After that, “It was almost the end of the game. But Prim did something unnecessary. It was something he shouldn’t have done. I had to show the spirit of partnership,” he said, strongly pointing out Prim’s behavior.
SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol also said after the game, “Prim hit hard at the end. It looks like Bukyung Choi has suffered bruises. Fortunately, it is not a ligament or cartilage. However, I will have to check again tomorrow morning. I had to finish it neatly… If it wasn’t on purpose, shouldn’t I have made a gesture of sorry?”
Kim Seon-hyeong (187cm, G), who was selected as the best player of the game, also said, “Looking at the game, it seems that Prim commits a lot of dangerous fouls. I hope you have a partner spirit. Even if it wasn’t intentional (what he did to Bukyung Choi)메이저사이트, I think he should apologize. I think I need to point it out once and for all,” he expressed a similar opinion with SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol and Hyundai Mobis coach Jo Dong-hyun.
Prior to the start of the 2022-2023 season, Prim had an element of anxiety about ‘excitement’. Because of his excessive fighting spirit, he committed many unnecessary actions and dangerous fouls. There were also many fines for unsportsmanlike fouls and technical fouls.
However, Prim could not calm his excitement again. As a result, the fouled player injured his knee. It could have threatened the player’s life. Hyundai Mobis coaching staff, including Hyundai Mobis head coach Cho Dong-hyun, and the Hyundai Mobis secretariat also pointed out many of Prim’s actions. Nevertheless, Prim set off another time bomb.
Even though he has outstanding skills, he is undermining his image because of his excessive behavior. No, even more scarlet letters may be embedded in it. There may be an image of ‘Prim is originally a rough, and originally dangerous foul player’.
If that happens, it is Prim who suffers the most loss. Even if you fight with a similar strength to the opponent or commit a foul with a weak strength to the opponent, the strength of the judgment or punishment for the prim can be increased. It’s not very fast right now, but I have to feel it and practice it from now on.
